Excuse my ignorance - I am not very technically minded! I have just installed NIS on my computer. I have a performance alert that there is a "high disk write usage by LSA shell (export version).
Is this ok or do I need to do something?
I have run a full scan and also used Malwarebytes. They haven't picked anything up!

From a google search I found that LSA Shell is the "other name" of lsass.exe (Local Security Authentication Server). It should be located in C:\Windows\System32.
If it is located there, it should be everything OK. Without it Windows would have serious problems.
